FinTrU announce four weeks paid sabbatical for staff completing five years

FinTrU’s chief human resources officer Sinead Carville.

STAFF at one of the north's fastest growing companies will receive a four week paid sabbatical after just five years work.

FinTrU now employs around 900 people in Belfast Derry, Dublin, London and New York.

The financial services group, which works with investment banks across the globe, has grown significantly during the pandemic, hiring more than 600 people since the start of 2020.

But FinTrU's chief human resources officer Sinead Carville said the company remains “extremely conscious” of maintaining a work-life balance for its staff.

From this week, she said any employee of associate level or above who has served a minimum of five years with the company, will be entitled to a four-week paid break.

Often associated with incentives offered for more senior roles in the financial sector, the HR chief said many employees have already met the criteria for what the group is calling ‘FinTrU Unplugged'.

“Five years working for a company shows a loyalty and solid commitment that shouldn't go unrewarded,” she said.

“Unplugged is the chance for employees to refresh, rejuvenate and, for a four-week period, literally unplug from work.

“It's a great chance for people to take that trip they always wanted to, work on a hobby they enjoy or simply spend more time with their family.”
